Throwback Thursday ’70s Inspiration

The Curator:

Steff Yotka

The Look:

Bianca Jagger in 1971

If there's a thread that connected the shows at Paris Fashion Week, it was the '70s. Subtle references to the decade that gave the world disco, bell bottoms, and a love of neutrals were woven into collections from Louis Vuitton, Givenchy, Celine, and more, so it makes sense that my fashion icon for the day would be Bianca Jagger. With a black heart choker and a white blazer, Jagger's look is relatively easy to recreate too. 

The Face:

Deborah Lippmann Nail Lacquer in Blue Orchid

Blue nails might not be traditionally '70s, but I'm going to make it work regardless. Plus, nothing goes with denim like some coordinating nail polish. 

The News: The SAT is Getting a Makeover

Still keeping 1600 points, but getting a new look in the reading and writing department. 

The Inspiration: 

Nicolas Ghesquiere's Letter at Louis Vuitton

So rarely is a designer as gracious, personal, and inspirational as Nicolas Ghesquiere was in the note left on the seats for guests at the Louis Vuitton Show. If he didn't win over your heart with his collection (which, let's be honest, he did), his letter will probably do it for you.

The Song: 

"She's A Rainbow" - The Rolling Stones

I always think of this song as the overture for a happier Margot Tenenbaum. Five years after the movie ends, her and Richie are living in bliss and every time Margot walks through their apartment door this song plays. Wouldn't that be nice?
